Banana Culture releases an official statement in response to rumors that T-ara received luxury cars as gifts

On January 8, Wang Sicong, the head of Banana Culture, posted an official statement via Weibo regarding rumors that his company gifted T-ara with luxury cars.

According to the official statement, "Banana Culture has never gifted T-ara members a luxury car nor did the agency provide a sum of 9 billion KRW ($8.4 Million) towards MBK Entertainment."

"Because of such false reports, our company is facing a major loss and is looking to take legal action."

Prior to this, T-ara members posted on their social media pages sharing their thoughts on this issue. 


The message read, "Hello, this is T-ara members Qri, Hyomin, Eunjung, and Jiyeon.  We currently do not have an agency to represent our team so we decided to speak up on our end. "

"In order to find out if the reports about us receiving supercars as gifts and 9 billion KRW ($8.4 Million) were true, we personally contacted Wang Sicong (Banana Culture) via Weibo, only to found out such news was fabricated."

"We hope that staff members and agency employees who worked diligently with us for a long time will not be negatively impacted by such false claims.  The four of us as 'T-ara' hope to greet everyone and may this issue be resolved once and for all.  This has been T-ara's official statement. Thank you for taking the time to read this long post."

Meanwhile, T-ara recently ended their contracts with MBK Entertainment as of December 2017.

안녕하세요 티아라 큐리, 은정, 효민, 지연입니다. 저희를 대신할 회사가 없어서 어떤 경로로 알려야 하나 고민 끝에 용기를 내어 이곳에 말씀드립니다. 언론에 보도된 중국과의 계약에서 멤버들이 슈퍼카를 선물 받았다는 내용과 90억 원에 대한 사실 확인을 위해 저희가 직접 웨이보를 통해 중국 왕쓰총 측(바나나 컬처)으로부터 위와 같은 사실은 허위이고 전혀 근거 없다는 공식적인 답변을 받았습니다. 데뷔 때부터 같이 고생한 회사와 모든 직원분들 역시 이러한 유언비어에 피해가 가지 않길 바랍니다. 앞으로도 '티아라'라는 이름으로 저희 네 명이 여러분들께 인사드릴 수 있고, 이 모든 것이 원만하게 해결되기를 바라는 것이 저희 네 명 멤버의 공식 입장입니다. 읽어주셔서 감사합니다.
